If you wish to sign your child up for an enrichment class, please be aware of the following important information.

  • After school enrichment classes are run by independent providers or DPS teachers who are renting a space at Edison to provide this service. These providers are not supervised or overseen by the school leadership or the Edison Extra Enrichment Coordinator (Gracen Porreca), however, they do complete an application and a background check in order to be approved to lead a class at our school. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the individual provider(s).
  • Parents need to register and pay for each class in which they wish their child to participate.
  • The enrichment schedule and registration links will be posted on the Extra Enrichment tab of the Edison website, the dates will be announced.
  • After school classes are typically held one day per week and will run from 3:30-4:30 pm.
    • The Fall classes typically begin in August and end in December
    • The Spring classes typically start in January and end in April or May.
  • Provider pick up for students after school:
    • For students in ECE-K:  At 3:25, Edison EXTRA Enrichment providers will pick up ECE and Kinder students from their classrooms and sign them out.
    • For students in 1st-5th grades: At 3:25 pm, all Edison 1st-5th grade students will be dismissed on the east side of the building. Students participating in Edison Extra Enrichment programs will be dismissed by their classroom teachers and sent to the picnic table area, near the steps to the school library, to join their enrichment provider.
    • Discovery Link Families: If your child normally attends Discovery Link, you will need to complete an Enrichment Provider Form. These forms are available at Edison’s Discovery Link Office and need to be completed prior to each activity (or session) and for each individual child. On days your child is registered for Extra Enrichment activities your child DOES NOT go to Discovery Link first, they will go directly to the pick up area (the picnic tables near the school library steps) for their Extra Enrichment activity at the end of the school day. The enrichment provider is responsible for ensuring your child gets to Discovery Link at the end of the enrichment program.
  • At the end of the enrichment class: The provider will walk ALL students to the main entrance (on the front or west side) of the school and take them outside to meet their parents or those authorized to pick them up. Parents are asked to please be on time and wait outside. When all the regular students have been picked up the provider must walk their Discovery Link students to the appropriate location and sign them in.
